Corsica

Vacation in Corsica means turquoise sea, white sandy beaches, pine forests and secluded bays. The crystal clear water is a paradise for divers and snorkelers. But other water sports are also very popular, especially in the seaside resorts. Corsica is also a paradise for hikers and mountaineers. High alpine regions such as around Monte Cinto, the highest mountain on the island, crystal clear mountain lakes and pine forests are waiting to be explored. But also gentle hilly landscapes with olive groves characterize the landscape of the island in the Mediterranean.

A citadel usually towers high above the towns, and time seems to have stood still in the winding, narrow alleys of the Corsican old towns and villages. In some places, statues commemorate the resistance fighters and the island’s turbulent past. The numerous Genoese towers – fortified towers from the 16th century – bear witness to how embattled Corsica once was. And the traces of Corsica’s most famous family, the Bonapartes, are still present in towns like Ajaccio. There is enough to discover and Corsica is worth a trip for everyone, no matter if you are looking for a cultural vacation, an active vacation or a relaxing beach vacation. On Corsica can be combined as this.
